"Divine Divas" dances through CSUS
California State University, Sacramento's
Dale Scholl Dance/Art opens its 20th season with "Divine
Divas," a tribute to legendary women from the music industry
on Thursday, Nov. 1. Artists - such as Aretha Franklin, Tina
Tuner and Madonna - that have inspired legions of people from
all walks of life stirred Scholl into creating new choreography
for the show.
The first of Scholl's new works included in the program is
entitled "Chain of Fools," and features Turner's
"What's Love Got to do With It?" and "I Can't
Stand the Rain," as well as Franklin's "Respect."
These songs set the mood for a passionate dance piece with
polished choreography. Scholl's second contribution to the
show is called "Crazy," a whimsical tribute to Pasty
On the other end of the musical spectrum, choreographer Eric
Vianelle found inspiration for new dance pieces in the rock
music of Annie Lennox's "Little Bird" and "Cold."
The program is completed by Joseph Candelaria's dance set
to pop icon Madonna's "Express Yourself."
"Divine Divas" runs at 8 p.m., Nov. 1 through Nov.
17 in the CSUS Dancespace in Solano Hall. Tickets are $8 -
15 and are available at the CSUS Ticket Office at (916) 278-4323.
